This is outside the realm of caregiving, but does concern inappropriate behavior by a senior person. This man has been active in several 12-step meetings for decades; the kissing began a couple of years ago and has now progressed to fondling. He only chooses newcomers and vulnerable females. When approached by a female long-time member of the group, he denies it. He was diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease a few years ago. Regardless of cause, how can he be approached in caring concern to bring about a change in behavior? Does anyone have experience with successfully dealing with this kind of inappropriate behavior?

Do you have any police officers at your meeting? They could speak with him...

One day I was walking in a busy mall, a hand took a full grab of my butt. I was in my late teens, I responded with a sharp elbow and closed fist behind me, without looking. Funny because the same thing had happened to me not long before at a disco....at the disco, the 'culprit' ended up being a cute Senior from my school...awkward. At the mall unfortunately the culprit was a kid that seemed to have mental issues.....I felt awful.

Like many I am offended by unwelcome advances, I would have handled both situations differently had I known.......warn the newbies
